Andrew Laidler

  • Description

    Description: This is a pass issued to Andrew Laidler, salmon fisherman, authorising him to proceed to the foreshore between the mouth of the River Tweed and Marshall Meadows. Date: 30 March 1915 The Waters of the Tweed have been used for Salmon Fishing since the early Medieval period, and have served as a huge part of local industry for centuries. This Photograph is taken from records relating to the Berwick Salmon Fisheries Company, the collection echoes world events through its commercial content. Most notably that of the First World War. All Fishermen required passes authorising them to proceed on the foreshore of the Tweed during this time of high border security. These Fishermen's passes, dating from 1915-1916 are shown here. They offer a glimpse in to the continued working lives in Northumberland during the First World War.
